Question description

Discussion: Rates and Sports Statistics

Now that you know how to compute average speeds, you are going to take a closer look at the speeds attained by Olympic athletes and discuss these speeds with your peers. Find an Olympic record holder in some racing event. (There are many places online where you can find data on past Olympic winners.) The Olympic record you choose can be for the 100 meter sprint, the 200 meter backstroke, the 1000 meter speed skate or the marathon—anything that's about speed.

  • Find the world record holder in any specific Olympic racing event. Calculate the average speed in m/s, mi/h, or some other unit rate. Share your results in a forum post. (Each member of the class must present a different Olympic record.)

  • Make a list of silly sports statistics that are rates, and another list of silly sports statistics that are not rates. Share your lists on the discussion.
